Posting a picture of himself giving a thumbs-up from hospital after being admitted in the early hours of the morning, Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro said he was waiting for doctors to assess him. He has been treated in hospital several times since being stabbed in 2018.
Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro has said doctors are assessing whether he needs surgery after being admitted to hospital with abdominal discomfort.
Mr Bolsonaro said in a Twitter post that he had started to feel unwell after lunch on Sunday and was admitted to hospital in Sao Paulo at 3am local time (6am in the UK) on Monday.
After the latest admission, the 66-year-old posted a picture of himself giving a thumbs up and said more tests will be done to see whether he needs surgery.
The government said he was “doing well”.
Vila Nova Star, the hospital where the president is being treated, said in a statement that he had an intestinal obstruction and was in a stable condition.
Mr Bolsonaro had been on holiday in southern Brazil.
